# of nights in hospital?



Recommended Posts

1 night. Surgery at 230p and out the next evening at 530p.

Could've stayed another night. Felt crappy but thought it better to be crappy at home.

I was told to expect 3 nights. I had surgery 12/30/13 in the early a.m. I woke up with lots of sharp chest pains which radiated to my heart. They started running heart test xs 3 to check my enzymes n make sure no heart attack. Day 2 same issue, very badly, they diagnosed it as esophageal spasms. I was told I also had a hernia repaired. Day 2 n 3 I was taken down for leak test, too painful to swallow (spasms) too swollen for liq to pass threw, nvr really " passed" the test, so doc made me npo and I ended up stayn a week n a day. They finally let me drink Friday n since I cud tol liq pain free, they decided to let me go today, Praise God. So far so good, just can't get comfy. Gla.

I was in 4 nights. I was a revision from band to sleeve and I had a lot of complications. the surgery itself took over 4 hours due to scar tissue (from the lap band and from a previous spleenectomy). After surgery I couldn't keep anything down because the swelling in my stomach and esophagus was so severe nothing was passing through. I also developed pneumonia and m y left lung collapsed. They also thought I had a blood clot (which I did not). So I had a lot of complications and still was only in 4 days.

Okay, I must be abnormal. I didn't stay the night. I was scheduled for surgery at 10:45 but started close to 2. I was ready to go by 7:30. The doctor was hesitant to let me go but I was out by 9pm. Anyone else not stay the night?

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
